2007 Booksense awards

The 2007 Booksense Awards have been announced. The Booksense awards recognize those books "independent booksellers most enjoyed handselling during the past year, as voted by the owners and staff of ABA member bookstores." Children's winners are:
  • The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
  • Owen & Mzee: The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship, by Isabella and Craig Hatkoff, Dr. Paul Kahumbu with photos by Peter Greste.

Kimberly Maul reports for The Book Standard.

Speaking of Markus Zusak, he's guest blogging during the month of April over at Inside a Dog. Don't miss it! (Speaking of Inside a Dog, here's another blog I thought was on my blogroll, but when I switched over to "new blogger" it didn't make the transition!)
